Throughout my academic experiences I have had numerous opportunities to share my knowledge with each one helping me develop a tool set of an efficient educator. One of my first teaching experiences was in my home country, Belarus, when I taught and tutored English at the Minsk State linguistic University for 4 years. During that time I practiced my organizational and educational skills working at a children`s activities center as a counselor. Also, I have gone through continuous pedagogical practice, which included giving individual English lessons as well as teaching English in class. I learned how to organize a safe leaning environment, welcome a student`s individuality, and how to encourage and interest students to participate in the process of learning using different teaching techniques.
While I was working on my Associate's Degree at Bellevue College, I worked as a tutor of French for the college, assisting my students in all levels of French. I planned carefully each individual tutorial, emphasizing phonetic, grammar and lexical skills. I analyzed and assessed students' levels, individual talents, abilities, and individual learning styles in order to better suit students' learning needs.
While attaining my Bachelor's in French and Linguistics at Western Washington University I continued tutoring French and began tutoring Russian for a total of three years. This time I taught French to elementary school kids, thus, I faced shorter attention spans and since I could not change the material, all I could do was change kids' involvement with it. Therefore, I planned their sessions in meaningful blocks, followed by singing French songs, playing active games, playing memory games, and exploring aspects of French culture by simply exploring the world.
Additionally, I tutored Russian at Western Washington University to students introducing and explaining diverse cultures of Russian speaking countries, as well as focusing on student`s pronunciation, grammar and lexical skills.
I received my bachelor's in French from Western Washington University were I graduated Magna Cum Laude. During my studies there I received key experience as a French tutor.
This past summer I attended the California Foreign Language Teachers Seminar at UCSB. Where I gained knowledge of implementing new technology in the learning process. Improving my knowledge of the Common Core standards in teaching foreign languages.
I grew up In Belarus where I learned Russian as my native language. Throughout college at the Mink State linguistic University, I both taught and tutored English and Russian for four years.
While in Minsk, I also gained vital experience as a Russian English Interpreter for BelExpo international. While attending Western Washington University, I tutored Russian for two years.
